Per that report, "Darvish, the source said, isn't sweating the lengthy free-agent process, meaning he's not at a point where he's starting to consider taking less money."

The free-agent market has moved at a snail's pace, slowed by the trade talks surrounding players such as Giancarlo Stanton and Gerrit Cole. Alongside Darvish, Jake Arrieta, Eric Hosmer and J.D.

Truly, I have never seen so many people espousing the merits of ground-ball specialist Eric Hosmer. Eric Hosmer, he of the career .155 ISO. Hosmer, whose banner 2017 was buoyed by a .351 BABIP, a mark 35 points higher than his career .316 BABIP.

Anyway, I am not here for such a debate. Nor am I here to denigrate Hosmer, who is a fine MLB first baseman. Instead, I am here to say nice things about Mitch Moreland. Moreland, who is now fatefully tied to Hosmer since the Red Sox chose to re-up with Mitch instead of overpay for Hosmer. Disclaimer: Mitchy Two-Bags and I are from the same hometown.
